Come One! Come All! See the amazing One Trick Pony! When the circus comes to town, Penny’s dream of joining just might come true. But only if she can pass try-outs. With the help of her friend Tommy, Penny learns that with practice and hard work, you can achieve anything. Practice makes you better!
When creating a picture book, one of the first things we do is develop character designs. It's important to nail down the look of the character because they are who children are meant to identify with. If children can't relate to the main character's struggle, the whole book falls flat. The strongest picture books are built from well-written characters and strong design. Joanna Pasek is one of our most experienced illustrators, and this shows in her work for One Trick Pony.
